Designed by Ong & Ong Architects, this unique home is a supreme resort with an exclusive design. This resort-inspired home on Faber Drive is a luxury home and includes a bomb shelter and a state-of-the-art entertainment system. With its unique décor and a true model of great architecture, this inspired luxury escape is perfect to improve a luxury lifestyle.
This luxury estate has a singular story: a classic Singaporean tale about a couple who wanted to upgrade to a bigger home with a marvelous and expensive interior design, one that is within a kilometer of the primary school for their children and which is also in close proximity to where their families live. So, the Peng family sold their corner terrace and, during the construction of their new detached home, they moved into a condominium. After this, together with Diego Molina and Maria Arango, two interior designers, famous architects, and directors at Ong&Onf, they started to demolish the original hexagonal-shaped house.
The husband and the wife team approached the project by planning for the house to be built to the side, in order to optimize land usage and accommodate a more generously sized garden and lap pool. The form and configuration of the original house did not really suit the family’s needs. Although it was a sizeable plot of land, the original house sat right in the middle of the site, leaving only small pockets of the garden.
With neighboring houses on three sides, the privacy was a crucial issue that the architects had to address, so they envisioned the retaining-cum-boundary wall as a backdrop for the lush landscaping, which would help provide privacy for the home and also provide shade and has become one of the home’s most distinctive features.
The project became a luxury inspiration and received an Honorable Mention in the Residential Category of the 16th SIA Architectural Design Awards. Actually, it is considered an exclusive and unique resort-inspired home and a symbol of a luxury lifestyle.
